I've been trying to think of something witty and failing so here it is in boring fashion.

Officially decided to do it, all that's left is for macil to set things up which could take a few weeks.

You may now panic at your leisure.

I'm increasingly tempted by !!Discord. I can rhyme but I'm really slow at it so !!Zecora won't work. If I'm still indecisive by then I'll help flesh out the mane6.

!!Twicane is still tempting because I'm thinking about how it would work in practice.

He acquires a fake beard, a blue hat, robe and a fuck ton of bells.
He then proceeds to take several hundred photographs of himself in various situations with various expressions to cover every eventuality.

And I'd presume (though I'd like to hear it confirmed) that Fen and Orange are holding on to Ponychan's current server so that we can all go back, if Thony does the same.

I'm not sure what Orange is going to do, but Fen will have full and complete access and control of both the domain and server, same as Macil. Orange as far as I know isn't going to be involved at any level. If he wants to hold on to the existing server, I mean that would be up to him, but it would probably be pointless to keep paying for a server that isn't being used, and the domain will be in Fen's hands. Not as if holding on to the current Ponychan servers is really a prize.

Orange is staying on as a developer, but has no role in terms of rules, mod hiring/firing, or other administrative stuff. Basically, he's gonna work on tech stuff and that's it. At least that's the plan, as far as I know, the keys haven't officially been turned over to Fen and Macil yet

So explain to me this /anon/ board concept again.

Is it going to be the same as the /anon/ on MLP chan or something a bit different?

I don't think I totally understand. Will NSFW threads be allowed there? I hope I'm not getting the wrong impression. I don't want to be banned. I have pony related things to post and my scheduled cannot be disrupted.

The concept is sort of /mlp/'s home away from home. Or new home. Or drama bunker survivalist panic room. Their home is sort of a run down shitshow, so it's a valuable service.

The exact same as on MLPchan. No changes at all.

/anon/ isnt changing at all from its current mlpchan implementation, so looking around for yourself would probably be the best way of getting a feel for the place.

You can namefag, but you'd more than likely be followed by shitposts no matter what you posted at worst or just plain ignored at best.
Make enough of an ass of yourself and you'll more than likely get banned.

I see some other namefags posting on /anon/. Also, I don't want to lurk, I'm looking forward to actually posting things on /anon/. !!Cadence, pls. !!Shining, pls.

I know what being Anon is like, I'm not new to the internet. I just like to be a namefag, but if it's offensive to /anon/ then I suppose I can make due without my namefagging habits. I'll be respectful of the rules, don't you worry.

A lot of the name/trip posting is usually in threads around a very specific topic - like the Second Life thread or threads where people contribute art about a specific thing, like Satyrs, Batponies, etc. It's not considered bad etiquette to post with a name if you're contributing something.
>> No. 165298 ID: ef443b
You can post spoilered lewd/nsfw/clop anywhere you want to on /anon/. It doesn't have to be in Mature Content threads.

You can post unspoilered lewd/nsfw/clop only in Mature Content threads.

Its allowed, but I don't think they'll appreciate it because its a place for anonymity. If you are contributing stuff or otherwise are hugely likable to them I don't think they'll hate you, but if you just post around with a name for literally no reason then you won't be liked that much and that's no fun for you.

They're probably just trying to avoid any potential trouble/arguments in the first place. Even though it's just cartoon horses and not actual "loli", it still tends to be a touchy subject.

Erm, I think OP forgot to mention something. Specifically, everything.

I have no idea what "it" is. The linked topic is equally useless.

It is only by reading the context that I can attempt to guess what is being talked about. This is incredibly bad communication skills.
>> No. 165315 ID: a098c9
You mean the "it" which had been the subject of ongoing discussion for days, which was linked at the top of every posters screen and which was the hot topic of conversation the entire time, which has multiple other formerly stickied threads dedicated to it (and actually, is still stickied on /meta/), which hit about 5,000 total posts+ across two different sites?

Maybe it's not a case of 'bad communication skills' on their part so much as 'willful obliviousness' on yours.

If I remember correctly, the butterflies are because of Ponychan X, because that's all I ever get (not that I mind it, heh). Let me see if I can find it...oh wait, the pX settings has something called 'enable favicons' checkmarked. Okay, I just unchecked the box, and now the site is back to cycling favicons. Got Pinkamena, and then an, uh, yeah, I guess that checkbox is doing the opposite of its intended purpose, since 'enabling favicons' just makes it static. Weird.

Posted, I still have all 140 original favicons.

The cycle has always been a little slow. If we look at the page source we can see they are hosted within
with the index number cycling randomly. If you play with it you can see most of the ones that made the final cut.
(There's not over 83k favicons, it repeats, EX 83843 and 83987 are an apple)

Edit: opening multiple boards on multiples tabs seems to stimulate it more, at least for me.

Huh, okay, so really the option is to enable Pchan X's favicons, which is just the butterflies. Good to know. Also, I don't get any mouse-over tooltips on my settings window for some reason, maybe that's an issue with Chrome or something.

pX anon here, and yeah, the update with the tooltips in the settings was never made native on the site. A couple of features only existed in the extension actually, like /pic/'s "gallery mode" and live duplicate image detection. I could imagine that it would not be an issue to have them implemented in the merged site because in all honesty I think /pic/ threads look hideous with all of that unused whitespace everywhere without it.

I'm pretty sure that the favicons are manually curated when a post goes through and forces the page to be regenerated. That's usually the standard procedure for anything involving static html (as opposed to dynamic).

Perhaps the best way to set up the favicons in the merged site is to use the curated favicons in the board indexes, then only have them overridden with the color-coded notification favicons when you're in a thread. That way you can tell whether you're in an index or a thread without actually opening it up.

Oh, it looks like Tinyboard's website shut down and someone else bought the domain and made it link to a troll page. I removed the broken links from MLPchan's copyright notices.

MLPchan's software was forked from Tinyboard years ago, so the Tinyboard project being discontinued is not a loss to us.

I've never heard of Lunachan before.

I don't know. I joined this site a month after it came up, and since then, I liked the fact that it was a haven from all the clop and things that would degrade the fandom within the public's eyes. It was a very nice example of what the brony community was; a tight knit family that cared deeply for one another, and was very open and, most importantly, family friendly. Even if it is just ONE board, the thought that people can get a porn fix THROUGH ponychan now hurts me. I remember when this site was made, that was one of the defining rules; No sexually explicit images. Anywhere. There were other places for that, and you should go there for it, not here.

I'm very deeply connected with the brony fanbase. It literally changed my entire outlook on life, but more and more it seems like it's just becoming some fetish thing, that the definition of brony is changing from 'Adults who watch My Little Pony," to "Adults who masturbate to My Little Pony." I don't want to have to stop calling myself a brony because people want to degrade its image through their fetishistic fantasies and not having the least bit of discretion about it. Don't get me wrong, I'm not judging anyone, but more and more I see clop becoming widespread, something that people don't even try to hide anymore. There are just some things you shouldn't go blaring into a megaphone. I'm not saying we should be ashamed of clop, I'm just saying we shouldn't wave it around like a flag. Children still watch My Little Pony, and even browse Ponychan, and I do not want to be part of a site that makes porn readily available to minors. That is what hurts the most, to be honest.

I wasn't in on the merger, but I'm pretty sure we're keeping it because it was a previous community we don't want to dismantle, not to make sure everyone can get their clop fix on or to make it known we support clop.

I don't like the idea of ponychan having clop either, but /anon/ was established way before the merger and I don't want to kill them off just because of my ideals which is why I'm kinda fine with it.

> I don't want to have to stop calling myself a brony
The fact that you do at all is somewhat astounding. But more to the point, the image of 'bronies' in every single person's eyes outside of the fandom, is far, far worse than what anyone thinks of Ponychan, or will think of it in the future post-merger. That is, of course, besides the point anyways, since no one outside of the fandom knows what Ponychan is regardless, and the image people have of 'brony' is so far beyond any influence that Ponychan could ever hope to have that your concern regarding your image, and what people think of 'bronies', that I have to question your seriousness. Well, that and the fact that you say you've been here 'since a month after the site came up' (and somehow have never heard of Lunachan, either.)

Well, I can't really say I'm part of this site anymore, I quit a few months back. Only reason I'm here now is because I needed help with something and I knew I could trust people here and I saw this post. Regardless, the merger killed any desire I had of coming back because of /anon/. I can't deal with it. It's just really painful to see a place I once called my home for so long become... something else.
>> No. 165509 ID: ef443b
Well I hope you can find solace I guess. /anon/ isn't a clop board, so I think you may be thinking of it somewhat wrong. Checking the big majority of the threads are unrelated to porn and only a few that could probably casually allow it.

I'd give it a try at least. I really doubt that the core of the site will change much just because its got an addon. The users control the atmosphere of the site more than anything and there were people who would have posted on a NSFW board from day 1.

also, I really don't think that we have a worse reputation now and I don't think clop damages it or makes us "Adults who masturbate to My Little Pony". Statistically the fandom has grown bigger and clop is made at the same rate. From this, its actually slowing down its percentage of art apparently as there are more SFW drawings for example. People wrongly thought clop was the core of the fandom then from the outside and I think many wrongly think clop is the core of the fandom now from the inside. Its really not grown as much as people think it has. Its always been there.

So, just try it I guess, maybe it will change the site more than I think maybe it won't.

But it's going to effect our site just as much when we merge as it does now, I.e: Hardly anything.

/anon/ isnt going to spread to all corners of the site, they dont want to, they mostly just want to be left alone to do their thing since they've been fucked over by admins quite a few times.

To see anything NSFW, you have to first go to /anon/ itself, then turn on "View mature threads" in the settings.

For a comparison that's similar, it's like an /oat/ regular worried that the donut bar thread in /rp/ will take over the site and require people to use tags in every thread.
>> No. 165543 ID: ef443b
the question is tho, do they? Honestly I'd like to see how many ips primarally from /anon/ regularly post on mlpchan's /oat/. I know at least one.

I'd assume its pretty low because I see no reason to disbelieve, and I also assume its mainly horny /oat/people, but its not like I think it will have as little an influence as /pic/ or the donut bar
